- GBP/USD bulls hit a brick wall in the Wall Street risk rally.
- The daily chart offers a bearish scenario for the days ahead.
GBP/USD is back to flat in the day after initial losses that were sparked in the face of the Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey reiterating that he expected price pressures to ease, as soon as April. Also, data showed Britain’s jobless rate rose to 3.9%, while the rate of increase in total pay held steady. At the time of writing, GBP/USD is trading near 1.2490 and is correcting lower from a 4-hour resistance area.
